The US State Department suspended work with Sadr’s leader Moqtada al-Sadr, saying “we will work with the Iraqis.”
US State Department spokeswoman Heather Noiret said in a press conference that her country would work with those who were elected and elected by the Iraqi people in response to a question on whether Muqtada al-Sadr would be considered an appropriate partner in Iraq.
“We will work with anyone who decides that the Iraqi government and the Iraqi people are elected to join the government, we have long and good relations with the Iraqi government and we will continue to have a good relationship with them,” Noiret said at the daily briefing.
Asked about Qassem Soleimani’s activities with a group of political parties, and what is the US doing to contain the Iranian influence on forming the next government in Iraq? “We have always said we believe … We have not said that for a long time, but we have said since the elections that we thought a coalition government would be formed, we will not anticipate this process, we will work with the government and whichever party the people choose and decide to choose. Whether he will meet Moqtada al-Sadr or not. Source
